While some people are worried about the finals others are worried about not knowing what to wear during their friends’ graduation receptions. For the later ones, don’t worry, Daddy has got I all figured out.
One thing I have never understood is why people wear suit and ties when ever they are going to attend a more “special” event, gathering or when they are going to a fancy club. Some guys believe that a tie makes their outfit better, but in my opinion it is often the opposite. Very few people know how to make a suit and tie combination look edgy. Most guys I bounce into wearing suit and tie look like they are dressed for an interview for an accounting job.
At parties or receptions you are not supposed to dress formal, you should aim at dressing to impress and look avant-garde, think Karl Lagerfeld. I do have a several ties myself but I prefer not wearing them, I prefer think silk scarves. Not only do few people wear them but they are not uncomfortable to wear like a tie sometimes is. In order to not look overdressed a good route to take is to wear a shirt, blazer and then push down a fancy looking pocket square in the upper pocket of your blazer. The outfit above should serve as a guidance since I find it to be a splendid outfit for a special occasion.
